    I was up there last night. Caught a couple skips and plenty of large shad and asains... The fish were biting right around 8:30ish until 10:00ish then suddenly stopped. I landed one fish about 14 pounds, but lost another due to a fraid line:angry::angry::angry: I new I should have re-rigged that pole before I threw in!! Dang it!! That should be a reminder, if the weight is starting to fray the line near the swivel, RE-RIG!!!! I guess I wasn't thinking properly and therefore I payed the price! Oh Well, I learn something new every outing and that's what it's all about!!
